1997 Affonso Giaffone IRL Original Ron Burton Artwork
Original artwork by world-renowned motor sport artist Ron Burton. This fantastic piece depicts Affonso Giaffone’s 1997 Indy Racing League Dallara car. Brazilian Giaffone was driving his #17 GM Brazil sponsored machine for Chitwood Motorsports. He competed in seven races during the 1997 season with a best finish of fourth place.
The work was composed in Ron’s abstract ’action’ oil on canvas style that emphasizes the illusion of speed. It has a side-on view of Giaffone’s highly colorful car in its foreground with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway ‘Wings and Wheel’ logo in the background. The approximate size of the work is 48 x 18 inches and is framed in an unglazed black aluminum frame.
The work is signed by Ron Burton and comes with a full Certificate of Authenticity.
This would look great hanging in any collector’s IndyCar collection.
